Driver licensing changes
As of April 1, 2023, drivers are no longer required to take the advanced road test to exit the Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) program.
See Changes to driver licensing system for more details.
In Alberta, it takes a minimum of 3 years to get a full, non-GDL Class 5 Driver’s Licence. Learn about the steps to getting licensed and the types of licences needed to legally drive different vehicles in Alberta.
